I just wondered if i got an ESP switch like on the ST , does anyone know if the wire's exsist next to the rear demister switch , i know i can turn it off via the trip computer , but i'd reather be able to switch it via a dedicated switch like on the ST.I don't want to try and get the panel off it there's not wiring there.

Apparently (from previous threads) there is some wiring behind there, but as to what it is for, is unknown!

ive had this out for my LED change. there is 2 wires attached. from what i can tell is that a button can be fitted but it will need activating by the dealership tool.

If i mangae to get it out i will put a meter on it and use computer to switch it on and off see if i get any change there or like you say may need activating.

But still trying ot locate a switch at the moment.

Hmmm having not pulled one of these apart before, i looked in a haynes manual and the upto date manual! only shows how to get the front off to get to the stereo on 2005/2009 and not facelift.
Has anyone done a readme on how to get to the stereo and of course the heated screen buttons so i can check if the wiring is there before i order an ESP bitton.
Don't want to break anything this early in having hte car :lol:

Ok finally got out there with my screwdrivers
Small guide hope it helps people. Also how to remove the radio mk3

First of all to remove the radio bezel.Using a flat head screwdriver wrapped with a duster to stop damage.
starting fron the underneath bottom .point A inserting the screw driver and twisting starts to prize bottom away. Then moving to point B insert from below again twisting the flat head screwdriver .While also applying gentle pulling pressure until bezel is clear of heater controls.
Moving to point C while still applying pulling pressure insert between dash and radio bezel prize forward until bezel unclips. Take your time !

You can undo the 4 radio retaining screws to remove the radio.

ok to check if wiring for ESP ! or what ever it's for.
You can use a flat head screwdriver to actually prize the buttons free no need to remove all of this at all , anyway inquisitive mind so i continued.
Found 4 wire's coming from ESP location so i guess the wires are there and now im hoping that just like the fiesta post that placing a switch in there will allow me to manually switch off ESP without having to go into the trip computer. ESP is fitted to my car.
2011-06-14 16.59.17.jpg
Left switch = 2 wires i think these are for the passenger air bag light OFF!
2011-06-14 16.58.55.jpg
Right hand switch = 4 wires ,i think these are dual purpose, for ESP and CC roof control.
2011-06-14 16.58.24.jpg

Removing the 2 screws above the switches allow for the extraction on the switches.
2011-06-14 17.15.29.jpg

So all i have to do now is get an ESP switch and of course test! it.

Hope this small guide helps others in checking thier own switch and i will of course update when i get a switch and test it. Fingers crossed :D
Regards
Paul

I have my fingers crossed , that its linked to the stork control , as i can turn ESP off via the computer. But nothing ventured nothing gained. I'm working on the hunch that as a manual switch is already able to switch it on and off via trip computer settings then the wiring may! also be live. ;) .If not then next service i'll say check that switch out , why is it not working haha.

thought as much thats usually how ford foes it you may find that it will be around 300 plus whatever it would cost to have it added as an extra is what they would charge
